Le Taureau

Posted by
Peter (Warkworth, New Zealand) on 16 June 2019 in Abstract & Conceptual.

When I saw this rock pattern at Brick Bay it struck me as very bull like and made me think of the Lascaux cave paintings near Montignac. What do you think? Maybe an old bull attacking a young rival. Quand j'ai vu ce motif de roche à Brick Bay, il m'a semblé très ressemblant et m'a fait penser aux peintures de la grotte de Lascaux près de Montignac. Qu'est-ce que tu penses? Peut-être un vieux taureau attaquant un jeune rival.

My goal is to present images of objects and places as naturally as possible with minimal post processing. I think the natural qualities will come through for the viewer with a little contemplation. Unfortunately there is little time for such things these days.

Yes, we can see things that way, if we lift the sexual side...
Superb colors !

@Gérard Flayol: Oui, j'ai aussi pensé à ça, mais mieux vaut ne pas le dire :)

Interesting found. I like your suggestion with the Lascaux bull. With some phantasy that could be right.

This is a real interesting image. The Lascaux Bull attacking a rival looks about right. A superb find. 5*
